Flat cluster of verrucas

Ok so I have tried just about everything!!

Banana skin
Apple coder vinegar
Nitrogen freezing
Salactol acid
Duct tape

The bastard is still there after 10 years! And it seems to sprout more around it.

When I have tried the vinegar method and others similar it seems to look like it's sunk into my foot like it's so deep.

What can I do???

I went through...
Silver nitrate
Bazooka super strong
cream with Salic acid 40%
Little pads soaked in the acid
Just covering the verruca with zincs oxide tape & ignoring it for a week at a time (disgusting when you remove the tape but no less effective than the above)
And after 6 yrs it finally went when I was using Glutarol liquid & I would cover it with piece of zinc oxide tape
I used a corn scalpel to remove the dead skin, which also helped to spread it...
Not sure if the glutarol helped it on its way or not.
From what I read verrucas are clever & you need to get the body to fight.
I recommend the tape instead of plasters as it sticks really well & just hides the bugger!

I'm about to start a course of microwave treatment. Costing £300 shock Christ I hope it works.

I used to file mine down with a soft nail file. Always made them go away

Dark nail varnish painted onto verucca. Each day add another coat.

About a week the verucca will have dried up and will fall off.

Saw this on tip online and was sceptical but it worked for us.
